Nostalgic trivia answer
I ought to relieve anyone who is in suspense over my nostalgic trivia question the other day. The connection between The Third Man film and the novel A Frenchman's Creek is that the novel's author Daphne Du Maurier and the film's director Carol Reed had an affair in their twenties. And in case you are wondering, Carol Reed was definitely a man (and, coincidentally, the uncle of Oliver Reed).
